From years of research, Dr. Michael Nageotte, perinatologist and medical director of the MemorialCare Center for Women, and pharmacist Gerald Briggs, PharmD designed an effective treatment for sever morning sickness (hyperemesis gravidarum). The pharmacologic therapy consists of infusions of the drugs Droperidol and Diphenhydramine.

According to published data from the MemorialCare Center for Women, the Droperidol combination is significantly more effective than any one of a number of regimens that have been tried in the past. Most women feel better within hours of receiving the therapy, stop vomiting after one day and are back home from the hospital after the two days.
